For your info, it's good to be aware that the majority of the cPanel Hosting offerings on the contemporary website hosting marketplace are supplied by a very insubstantial business niche (as far as yearly money flow is concerned) known as hosting reseller. Reseller web hosting is a sort of a small-scale business niche, which generates an immense quantity of different web hosting brand names, yet furnishing precisely the same services: mainly cPanel web hosting services. This is bad news for everybody. Why? Due to the fact that at least 98 percent of the hosting offers on the whole web hosting marketplace offer one and the very same thing: cPanel. There's no variety at all. Even the cPanel-based Hosting prices are identical. Very identical. Giving those who need a top web hosting service virtually no other web hosting platform/hosting Control Panel alternative. Thus, there is merely one fact: out of more than 200,000 web hosting trademarks in the world, the non-cPanel based ones are less than 2%! Less than 2 percent, note that one...

200,000 "Hosting corporations", all cPanel-based, yet distinctly named

The Hosting "diversity" and the hosting "offerings" Google shows to all of us boil down to merely one and the same thing: cPanel. Under 100's of thousands of different website hosting trademarked names. Suppose you are merely a regular fellow who's not very well aware of (as most of us) with the website making procedures and the web hosting platforms, which actually power the various domain names and web sites. Are you ready to make your web hosting choice? Is there any website hosting variant you can opt for? Sure there is, today there are more than two hundred thousand web hosting corporations in existence. Formally. Then where is the difficulty? Here's where: more than 98 percent of these 200,000+ unique web hosting brand names all over the world will give you absolutely the same cPanel website hosting Control Panel and platform, named differently, with precisely the same price tags! WOW! That's how huge the variety on the present-day web hosting marketplace is... Period.

The Hosting LOTTO we are all participating in

Simple mathematics shows that to come across a non-cPanel based web hosting provider is a mammoth strike of luck. There is a less than one in fifty chance that a phenomenon like that will take place! Less than one in 50...

The positive and negative points of the cPanel-based Hosting solution

Let's not be harsh with cPanel. At least, in the years 2001-2004 cPanel was trendy and perhaps met all web hosting market preconditions. In brief, cPanel can achieve the desired result if you have only one domain name to host. But, if you have more domains...

Drawback No.1: A dumb domain folder configuration

If you have 2 or more domains, though, be extremely careful not to erase completely the add-on ones (that's how cPanel will dub each next hosted domain, which is not the default one: an add-on domain). The files of the add-on domains are very simple to delete on the web hosting server, because they all are located into the root folder of the default domain name, which is the quite famous public_html folder. Each add-on domain name is a folder placed inside the folder of the default domain. Like a sub-folder. Next time attempt not to delete the files of the add-on domain names, please. Examine for yourself how terrific cPanel's domain name folder system is:

public_html (here is situated)
public_html/my-family (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-second-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/ (an add-on domain)
public_html/my-third-wife (a folder part of
public_html/ (an add-on domain name)
public_html/rebeka (a folder part of
public_html/ (a sub-domain of an add-on domain)

Are you getting puzzled? We positively are!

Problem Number Two: The same electronic mail folder system

The e-mail folder structure on the server is exactly the same as that of the domain names... Repeating the very same mistake twice?!? The sysadmin chaps strongly reinforce their faith in God when coping with the mail folders on the email server, praying not to botch things up too harshly.

Inconvenience Number Three: An entire absence of domain name administration menus

Do we have to bring up the sheer shortage of a modern domain name administration platform - a location where you can: register/relocate/renew/park or manage domain names, alter domain names' Whois details, secure the Whois information, alter/create nameservers (DNS) and DNS resource records? cPanel does not offer such a "contemporary" interface at all. That's a big shortcoming. An unforgettable one, we want to add...

Negative Aspect Number Four: Numerous user login locations (minimum 2, max 3)

How about the demand for another login to access the billing transaction, domain name and tech support administration section? That's aside from the cPanel user account login credentials you've been already provided by the cPanel Hosting company. Occasionally, based on the billing transaction platform (especially tailored for cPanel exclusively) the cPanel Hosting service provider is using, the enthusiastic users can end up with 2 extra logins (1: the invoicing transaction/domain name administration interface; 2: the ticket support interface), winding up with a total of three login places (including cPanel).

Negative Point Number Five: More than 120 hosting Control Panel areas to get acquainted with... briskly

cPanel presents to your attention more than 120 sections inside the web hosting CP. It's a fabulous idea to become familiar with each of them. And you'd better get acquainted with them quickly... That's excessively insolent on cPanel's side.

With all due respect, we have a rhetorical question for all cPanel-based Hosting vendors:

As far as we know, it's not the year 2001, is it? Remark that one too...
